Congrats to Billy Shire~

from the La Luz de Jesus Gallery website:

"Beyond Eden will also feature an 'Artist Village' in the courtyard outside of the LAMAG in the beautiful confines of the Barnsdall Art Park. The 'Artist Village' will feature an array of live painters curated by the featured galleries alongside installations, live screen printing and performance art.

Founded in 1951, the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery is a historic 10,000 square foot facility located on the sprawling grounds of Olive Hill in the Barnsdall Art Park. The park overlooks the city of Los Angeles and is also home to the famous Frank Lloyd Wright Hollyhock House and Arts Complex. Under the Department of Cultural Affairs, the LAMAG is the premier city-run gallery that focuses on contemporary art, particularly the work of living Southern California artists.

A special address from Mark Steven Greenfield, the director of the LA Municipal Art Gallery
Presentation of a lifetime achievement award to Billy Shire in recognition of all he’s done for the new contemporary art movement...."

I also grabbed this photo. You can see my two hand paintings right between the two doorways in the main room. Great spot for visibility.
